A Mother's Prayer

Lord, I need your help today.
I want to care for those you've sent into my life,
To help them grow in body, mind, and spirit,
To help them develop the special gifts you've given them.

But I also want to free them
To follow their own paths
And bring their loving wisdom
To the world.

Help me to embrace them without clutching,
To support them without suffocating,
To correct them without crushing.

And help me to live joyfully and playfully
Myself so they can see your life in me
And find their way to you.
